Volunteers needed to make special hats for newborns

Little Hats Big Hearts - American Heart Association Like to knit or crochet? Volunteers are needed to make red hats for babies for American Heart Month
Patty Aguilar | 14 November, 2017, 21:31

The American Heart Association is putting out a call for knitters and crocheters for their "Little Hats, Big Hearts" program.

The organisers hope to "raise awareness, provide resources and inspire moms to take their family's heart health to heart while also raising awareness about Congenital Heart Defects".

The American Heart Association is calling on knitting and crocheting enthusiasts across CT to donate red knit or crocheted infant-sized hats to support the third-annual Little Hats, Big Hearts program.

Anyone who knits or crochets and would like to participate in Little Hats, Big Hearts is encouraged to visit this website for information on deadlines and where to send your hats.

Special little heads are going to need tiny hats to keep them warm come February.

Organizers are asking for red cotton or acrylic yarn that is medium to heavy-weight and machine washable/dryable.

The program, which started in Chicago three years ago, generated around 300 hats.

Now, however, the campaign has expanded to more than 40 states.

The program also helps raise awareness about heart defects.
